Finn en balans mellan offentlighet och kommersialisering : Plats för offentligt gatuliv i Södra Loungu Lane Block, Beijing China (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

China is now seeking for more sustainable and healthy urban development and pays much attention to better quality of urban life in the process of new-type urbanization. Beijing, as the capital and economic centre in China, plays a leading role in practices for vital and diverse urban life in the existing urban space, especially Hutong redevelopment. A lot of problems and challenges emerge in this process, such as over commercialization of public space, gentrification, and exclusion of original inhabitants. Based on a combination of western public life study and Chinese practises, this thesis tries to figure out the problems and spatial role of Hutong in the process of regenerating thriving public street life in South Luogu Lane Block in Beijing. To find proper solutions for these problems, the thesis looks into Gehl’s public life theory, Hillier’s space syntax and practices from Project for Public Spaces. With the placemaking strategy, the thesis aims to find a way to achieve a balance between publicness and commercialization in Hutong redevelopment and create good public street space for commercial activities and everyday life in South Luogu Lane Block.

China söker nu mer hållbar och hälsosam stadsutveckling och anstränger sig för att skapa bättre kvalitet på stadsliv i processen av ny-typ urbanisering. Beijing (Peking??), som huvudstad och den ekonomiska centralen i Kina, spelar en ledande roll i att införa praktiker för vitala och skiftande stadsliv i den existerande stadsrum, speciellt ombyggnaden i Hutong. Många problem och utmaningar kommer fram i denna process, såsom kommersialisering av offentlig mark, gentrification och uteslutning av de ursprungliga medborgare. Baserad på en combination studier om offentligt liv i väst och kinesisk praxis, försöker den här uppsatsen ta reda på vilka problem som finns i Hutong och dess spatiala roll i processen av återskapandet av blomstrande gatuliv i South Luogu Lane Block i Peking. För att hitta passande lösningar för dessa problem, ser denna uppsats till Gehls teori om offentligt liv, Hillers plats syntax och metoder från Projekt för O

offentliga platser. Med strategin av placemaking, är målsättningen att hitta ett sätt att uppnå balans mellan offentlighet och kommersialisering i Hutong nyutveckling och skapa god offentlig gatuplats för kommersiella aktiviteter och vardagsliv I South Luogu Lane Block.
